Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Beulah was last seen in the afternoon hours of March 23, 2003 in the vicinity of the 1400 block of Harvey in Green Bay, Wisconsin. She was accompanied by an unidentified woman at the time; the woman is described as Hispanic and shorter than Beulah.
Beulah has never been heard from again. Her husband, Tyrone M. Ware, reported her missing on March 30, which was also his birthday. All of her belongings were left behind, except for her jacket.
Beulah was in an abusive marriAge at the time of disappearance: at the time of her disappearance and her husband was jailed for domestic violence. She had hoped to find another place to live before Tyrone's release from jail.
Tyrone left the area shortly after he reported Beulah's disappearance, and as a result warrants were issued for his arrest for bail-jumping and failure to appear in court. He was not located by police until 2005, over two years after Beulah vanished. He was considered to a person of interest in his wife's disappearance, but not labeled a suspect.
Tyrone was killed in July 2007, four years after his wife's disappearance, when he was accidentally struck by a car.
Prior to her disappearance, Beulah often rode a bike between the areas north of Ashland Avenue east through Danz Avenue in Green Bay. She was unemployed in 2003 and had to rely on community services for support. She obtained food at a local food pantry.
Authorities initially believed she was hiding to avoid her husband, but her daughter says they spoke to each other frequently and it is uncharacteristic of Beulah to be out of touch. Her case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
